This is just sad...seriously.

But not shocking at all. Activision is a joke of a publisher. More importantly, Bobby Kotick.

That pile of **** needs to be exiled from the gaming industry.

First he causes the spiraling demise of the COD franchise (BLOP2 being the latest failure) and now he begins to blemish The Walking Dead franchise.

And yes, I know Terminal Reality is developing, and IMO they did a good job with Ghostbusters...but the lack of support hurt. Their latest, Kinect Star Wars was a flop. After looking at the "beta footage" lately, all I see are major red flags with this game.

To me, that video looked more alpha stage than beta. And with the game releasing in late March...with at least 2 weeks prior to that for manufacturing and distribution, I don't see the game getting that much better, if at all. If they had better footage, I see no reason why they wouldn't have shown it.

This game needs to be delayed, badly. For at least 4-6 months (personally, I'd scrap/cancel this game). But since this is Activision we're talking about....I expect the game to be rushed out the door to make a quick money grab.

Mark my words...not only will this be a shoddy looking game, moreimportantly, it will be a poorly designed game, that will be plagued with issues/bugs.

Just another reason to justify my stance to never support this trash-bin of a publisher ever again. Activision needs to fade away.

Hmm... taking an unbiased look at the game I would have to agree.

The gameplay doesn't really look inspired at all, and that doesn't help that it's being published by Activision, the company churns out soulless games for a buck.

With Telltale Games TWD, at least they had a good story and character choices to lead it. With this game, what is there going to be different or set it apart from other zombie games?

All in all, I'd like to see more of this game to make a better decision, but I wouldn't hype myself up for this one.

The thing is, I wouldn't compare it to Left for Dead or CoD Zombies. I've seen an IGN Start interview, and it's got a lot more survival and strategy, but then that was a few months ago that it was made. November I believe. And it reminds me of Oregon Trail, but in a good way. :) It has the feel of hard decisions like the Tell Tale Games Walking Dead, but it's still a first person shooter. Shooting is actually discouraged in this game. And you meet survivors, have story missions, and little side 'Road Events' and several different options. It seems like a good RPG-FPS Hybrid.

But I must agree, its graphics are a bit behind, and the gameplay seems a bit glitchy at some points of the beta, but I believe that in 2 months time, they can fix the crap out of this game.

Tell that to the millions of people who buy the annual installment. I believe those are the people you really hate here.

You are a big problem TC in gaming today. Everything has to be triple AAA big budget GOTY game to you. It cannot always be that way but being negative on a game before it comes out because it doesn't look like other huge market games just sucks.

I am buying this game and excited.

I don't like Bobby Kotick, but anyone that says he's bad at his job is an idiot. The man prints money.

You want a bad CEO? Go look at EA's chief. He nickel and dime's consumers until their wallets are flat and he still can't keep the company at a profitable level. Stockholders haven't seen a return on investment in years.

Except they're selling it at the same price as the "triple AAA" games, so why would I buy a weak game when I could just go buy GTA 5, Bioshock Infinity, hell even COD. And know im getting something worth my money.

I used to have gamefly, and I cant hate on it its worth its price, but I could never get the games that just came out and I hated waiting 4-7 days. I felt gamefly/blockbuster/hollywood video were good for playing the games you knew werent worth the money to buy and that you could beat in 3 or 4 days.

But this game shouldnt just be some game you just rent and move on to your next game a week later.
